A Late Arrival

Friday, June 17, 2011
Look what arrived this morning. Jack Frost finally decided to pay us a visit. Finally. Does this mean we're going to get a proper winter from now on?
Even though I don't really enjoy the frosty cold on my fingers, I like the definition of the seasons (no tropical living for me), but winter has sure been tardy this year.

Every winter,
When the great sun has turned his face away,
The earth goes down into a vale of grief,
And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables,
Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay -
Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.
~Charles Kingsley

Hi Rachel, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your blog. I wanted to let you know that I've been praying for you lately- for peace in the tumult and disruption of the earthquakes, for joy, and for hope.

"Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
Isaiah 54:10

Isn't it crazy that we had the warmest May in history and then such cold days in June! It's rare that we get frost, but I will post pics, too, when we get some.
